willieH: Hi OT...
As always, you are welcome to see things as you do, and it is not my purpose to change those views... If God should use any of us in the others circumstances, then it is HE which is changing us...
heres my take on it,.None of us can stand before God since we are not refined completely.
We ALL stand before God
on a continuous basis, Onlytruth -- Psalms 139:7-12
In order for the refining process to be accomplished our hearts have to be seen for what they are.This is what occurs on a regular basis through various trials and tribulations,it is in these times where we chose to die to ourselves or not.When we don't die to selves...nasty stuff happens.God didn't want this,He wants us to chose Him for relationship.
I'm just asking questions for you to consider...
:omg: I don't agree with this statement
How can it be said by YHVH
that He is an "ALMIGHTY God"
, and yet -- things occur within His Creation (over which is His "ALL MIGHT"), that He
agree with, as becoming manifest?
But we all know either now or later ,we will be with Him.
So God lets us make our own decisions; because like Him we create some times good sometimes bad.
Again, a bit of disagreement. Yes, we DO
create some times "good" and sometimes "bad" -- however, it is according to Him and His DECLARATION of us, that we "create" these scenarios -- Isaiah 46:10 -- Rom 4:17
As for GOD "creating" sometimes good and sometimes bad... I disagree COMPLETELY
. He ALWAYS "creates" GOOD
. Even EVIL
(as "created" by Him) has been exposed (via Men IN TIME) --- for what it
IS, which is ETERNALLY on behalf of GOOD
to magnify GOOD
-- for what it
plainly stated -- "I CAN, of MINE OWN SELF -- DO NOTHING"
-- John 5:30
-- If this is true of CHRIST
, then it also must be true of us...
could DO NOTHING
"apart" from God, How can we assert that -- "OF OURSELVES"
, we "DO"
anything apart from YHVH
? Is this a proposal that WE are "ABLE" to DO
something CHRIST COULD
We LIVE and MOVE and have our BEING within Him! -- Acts 17:28
-- and ALL POWER is HIS -- Rom 13:1
-- so even if POWER (as it appears to us) is misused
, it was HE
which ISSUED it KNOWING
BEFORE the "misuse
" --- that the power ISSUED would be "misused
If this is indeed true (which it IS
)... Then the "misuse
" has to be deduced as INTENDED! For YHVH
issued to the "misuser
", power to "misuse
" with PRIOR KNOWLEDGE of the "misuse
Bottom line... we are on HIS PROGRAM
... on ours
is working ALL THINGS
-- which includes EVERYTHING
-- Eph 1:11
-- (ALL THINGS
does not disinclude ANYTHING
one day though we will choose life on every opportunity until then we still need it written on our hearts
And it is within the process of TIME and (within this life = LAKE of FIRE), that this -- "writing" -- is taking place...
